Samsung Ordered To Pay Apple Another $290 Million

Posted Nov 22, 2013

On Thursday, a federal jury ordered that Samsung owes Apple another $290 million for infringing on patents, according to several reports from the court-room.  This decision was part of a partial retrial from last year’s lawsuit between Samsung and Apple.


The jury in the case ruled that Apple was owed $1 billion from Samsung.  Judge Lucy Koh ruled that over $400 million of that award was not properly calculated though.

Apple argued that they were owed a further $379 million and Samsung said that they should only owe $52 million for the damages.  Aside from this decision, Samsung owes around $600 million to Apple for other patents. The jury consisted of six women and two men.

The jury deliberated for around three days before deciding on a verdict.  The jury requested for additional paper, pens, and better lunch.  They also asked for a copy of the sketches of them done by a courtroom artist.

There is another case set for trial next year in front of Judge Koh revolving around a new generation of Samsung products.  Samsung and Apple are both appealing different parts in the very complex case.  The total due to Apple is now around $929.83 million between the two cases.
